Comments on Traveling by Eagle Air:
Gwaihir the Windlord
Move or separate one Companion or one group of Companions from the Fellowship as if their Level was 4.
This movement can end in a Stronghold under siege.
Eagle carrying Hobbit vs Gandalf the White + Hobbit(on Shadowfax)= Draw
Eagle carrying Hobbit vs Strider + hobbit + dwarf with "We prove the Swifter" = Strider by a region
Can carry into besieged strongholds (does shadowfax get lifted or does he trot in on his own?)
Cannot carry hobbits over mountains.
Shadowfax is not a character in War of the Ring.
It is just a special ability of Gandalf the White.
So we don't need to worry about the horse's movement.
Only with "Gwaihir the Windlord" or "We Prove the Swifter" Event card, the companions may move into a Stronghold besieged.
But I'm not sure that "We Prove the Swifter" is about air-lift.
